Abstract

This review assesses the usefulness of beta-blockers in the treatmentof aggression and describes the parameters for their clinical use. A Medline search using the terms ''beta-blockers,'' ''aggression,'' ''propranolol,'' and ''brain injury'' identified relevant journal articlespublished in English between 1977 and 1993. Open, prospective and double-blind, placebo-controlled studies, as well as case reports, were included. Beta-blockers appear to be effective in decreasing the frequency and intensity of aggressive outbursts associated with a wide variety of conditions, such as dementias, attention-deficit disorder, personality disorders, Korsakoff's psychosis, posttraumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, profound mental retardation, autism, and brain injury. A general discussion attempts to resolve some of the issues surrounding the possible mechanisms of beta-blocker effects, reviews the anatomic and neurochemical bases of aggression, and explores implications of the clinical use of beta-blockers.
